Do NOT Let Them Make A Saint Of This Asshole

in #johnmccain4 years ago (edited)

“Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe." ~ Arundhati Roy

John McCain's family has announced that the Arizona Senator has opted to end treatment for brain cancer and live out his final few days in peace, presumably under the best hospice care money can buy. And I sincerely hope that it is peaceful. My statements about my desire for John McCain to shuffle off this mortal coil sooner rather than later have been highly publicized, and I stand by all of them, but I don't wish him a painful or agitated end.

And, also, I am going to keep hammering on how very important it is that we refuse to bow to the aggressive demands from establishment loyalists that we be respectful of this warmongering psychopath and his blood-soaked legacy.

McCain is at the top of the trends list on Twitter in the US as I write this, and clicking on his name brings up countless blue-checkmarked establishment loyalists from both sides of the imaginary partisan divide sternly admonishing us all to put aside our differences and show reverence for this brave, noble hero in his final days. They are using guilt, sympathy and patriotism to bully their followers into showing reverence for a man who has dedicated his entire political career to facilitating the violent slaughter of human beings at every opportunity, and in so doing they are sanctifying his legacy.

One of the most aggressively protected narratives in corporate liberal circles is that John McCain is a hero whose very name should be uttered with the greatest reverence. It gets traction with rank-and-file Democrats because supporting McCain for his opposition to Trump allows them to feel as though they are non-partisan free thinkers, in exactly the same way Trump supporters believe their hatred of McCain makes them non-partisan free thinkers. In reality, McCain is just one of the many bloodthirsty neocons like Bill Kristol and Max Boot who have aligned themselves with the Democratic party in recent years in order to better advance their warmongering agendas.

It is those agendas that are being promoted with the hero worship of John McCain. By committing the outrageous heresy of mocking, ridiculing and scorning that sacred cow, we are fighting the attempts of the empire loyalists and war propagandists to normalize and sanctify the act of inflicting neoconservative military bloodbaths upon innocent people around the world.

If you want to see a world with more and more John McCains, with more and more US wars of aggression and regime change interventionism, then by all means play right along with his public beatification. If you want to see a world where neoconservative war whores are treated with the revulsion, disdain and rejection they deserve, then now is your chance to help create that world. Refuse to be shamed and guilted into polite silence and move in the exact opposite direction from where the establishment shepherds are herding you.

You don't have to be as brash about it as I am if that's not your cup of tea. But now, while they are telling us that we are not permitted to speak about McCain's unforgivable record of facilitating military bloodshed in Iraq, Syria, Libya and elsewhere, it is precisely the time to speak. By publicly disrupting the narrative of McCain's sanctification, we make it harder for the war propagandists to manufacture consent for more war. It really is that simple.

So just look at the emotional environment that the empire lackeys are trying to create, and create the exact opposite, loudly and without apology. Fight the seriousness and solemnity with mockery and ridicule. Fight the reverence and hero worship with irreverence. The more people see this being done, the harder it will be to shame and bully everyone into playing along with the normalization and celebration of a career that is drenched in the blood of children. By making it clear in the most irreverent ways possible that you are happy to see McCain go, you are giving others permission to step outside of the lines they're being herded into, and you are helping to create a world where murderous warmongers are marginalized instead of celebrated.

You will be told that you do not have permission to say such things. You have permission to say such things. You will be told that you are being impolite to John McCain's family. The families of mass murderers are not entitled to our politeness. You will be told that you are making yourself look bad. Creating a world where neoconservative war whores experience an appropriate amount of rejection is more important than looking good. Kill their propaganda narratives with mockery and irreverence and help usher in a new world where it is no longer considered okay to be a psychopathic neocon.

Let death get its wish. Let death die so that life may live. So long, John McCain, you despicable death cultist. I wish you and everyone like you a peaceful, painless, permanent end.

I personally think it's really up to the individual how they react to McCain's news, and if one chooses not to rejoice in his death, it doesn't mean they are establishment. :) I totally understand your viewpoint and I respect it. I personally try not to rejoice in someone's death, as I would prefer that people have changes of heart and such while they are alive. And I often think about the family... So, for example, I would think that anyone who tags the family in their glee (which you do not) would be out of line.

With that said, McCain chose to be in the spotlight and to have a very public life, so criticisms of him, even at this time, shouldn't be admonished either (IMO). It's just really up to each individual how they choose to react. I just wanted to add that choosing not to react with joy about his death doesn't mean someone is on the establishment side. :)

I agree. Just because we don't like someone and fail to state such upon their death doesn't mean anything, doesn't mean anything more then if we said it while they were alive, if you don't like them you don't like them, dead or alive.

Buh-bye genocidal maniac!

As far as I can tell that asshole spent the last few decades of his life trying to make sure the world ended in nuclear fire before he died.

Fuck him. Burn in hell McCain.

Indeed! I wrote a post as well on this traitorous Bastard and was wondering who else used this tag! Good for you! They can't sensor the Block Chain!

His moderate headchopping mates in Syria must be devastated by this news.

But at least they still have Lindsay Graham and John Bolton.

Perhaps this cancer is a manifestation of his conscience punishing him for all the pain, misery and suffering that his actions and lobbying have caused to so many people in so many countries around the world.

I have sympathy only for his victims.

Everytime someone brings up John McCain its ALWAYS that hes a war hero... just being in the military and surviving being a prisoner of war doesn't make you a hero.

He gets a lot of his money through his foundation. And would you guess where it comes from? Mostly Saudi Arabia... I dont trust him and I try to vote him out of office every chance I get.

Excellent post, I agree with you!
(with the exception of peaceful ends.... But I'm not the forgiving kind.)

I am suspicious of death-fakers.

McCain has a history of being duplicitous. What are the chances that a duplicitous person would devise and employ a tactic to evade being held accountable for aiding and abetting the Cabal? What are the chances he would develop a previously unpublicized illness precisely the year that he faces his greatest chances of exposure?

In my opinion, his entire illness serves the convenient purpose of avoiding being held to account for his actions. It included the possibility of a 'miraculous' recovery if the Cabal managed to get the upper hand on the forces moving against them. Things going badly for the Cabal probably inspired a kind of race to use the 'fake your death' get out of jail card before it was over-used to absurdity. Notice that Bill Clinton has the same escape plan. The 'deaths' of all highly placed Cabal operatives should be taken with extra discernment due to the tactical utility of such an event.


This is very disrespectful of the dead. I linked to a much more honest memory to remember John McCain for.

It’s a sad state of affairs when we are told to mourn the deaths of those whose actions cause the slaughter of countless people throughout the world.
